Well located...easy parking and walking access to amenities and restaurants. Room was clean and staff was excellent. Our stay was 4 nights and the rooms were refreshed every day...would stay again. Moderate Pricing for an above average motel.

I like that this is not a chain motel. They have a small but nice pool area. I prefer their rooms with outdoor access, but any rooms are always clean. My only complaint would be that the halls and common areas are sometimes in need of some touch up. Their breakfast is great and appreciated.

I'm giving this low review because I asked for a refresh in my room so I could get more towels and my trash taken out, I got told "if the housekeepers have time, they will." Also another day, I asked the housekeeper for service and she said my room only gets done 2 days a week. I think that if... More

Room had a terrible odor in it, website says adequate parking and plugins for boats, only true if you are one of their guides, had to run a cord out of the window to plug in charger on boat. parking area is very crowded. Also lighting in rooms is not hardly adequate.

This is an older hotel--but--the rooms are very, very clean and items look new. However--the smell in my room just ruined the stay. Thinking it was just my room, I asked two coworkers--and they all reported that their rooms smelled. Maybe mildew? Maybe mold? I thought it was the AC--but turning it off did not seem to help. I won't... More

This is a very basic hotel, good for a one night stay. Room was clean and comfortable. Fitness room is in need of attention. Breakfast was mediocre at best. An ok hotel, but a bit overrated.

I'll just zero in on the concerns I have about this facility. I interacted with two different front desk staff. One was helpful, though overly familiar like somebody I might be sitting next to in a bar, and he was profane. The other one simply wasn't that concerned about helping me out. I felt like I had interrupted his day.... More

The room was great, newly remodeled and perfect for our needs. Everything was working and clean. Most impressive was the young man at the desk that evening. He was courteous and when I asked if there might be an extra cell phone charger he loaned me his personal charger. Service above and beyond.

Awesome family business. Boat plug ins. close access to everything. Can walk home from Mad Mary's, the best prime rib restaurant, if you decide to have a few drinks. Always full during pheasant season so make your reservations early.
